College News 














    Two great college events this past week at HTH. Pictured above, a college fair in the HTH gym. About 50 college reps from around the country participated for this college fair just for High Tech students. 

The second event is the College Admissions Case Studies event. This event is only for 11th grade students and is a collaboration with Francis Parker, La Jolla Country Day and The Bishops School. This interactive event includes over 90 college admission representatives talking admission in a small discussion-based format. 



Advice from the college counselors:


  • Research the schools you are applying to so in the essay, you can be specific about why you want to go there
  • Do not use the words "I think" or "I believe" in your essays, makes you sound not committed
  • Use the essays to tell admissions about discrepancies in your application
